The Johnson County Medical Examiner’s Office was recently recognized for excellence in donation by the Midwest Transplant Network.

With a 44% tissue conversion rate and 65 recovered tissue donors, the Medical Examiner's Office has helped over 5,000 recipients. The Medical Examiner's Office also recovered 29 organ donors for the transplant network.

"Dr. Peterson and her staff consistently go the extra mile to partner with MTN to facilitate donation," said Brad Marten, MTN Funeral Home, Medical Examiner & Coroner Liaison, at the award ceremony on April 23.

The Johnson County Medical Examiner's Office was the first medical examiner office in the Midwest Transplant Network's service area to implement an electronic referral system. This system developed two years ago, set the standard for other Medical Examiner's offices for direct referrals.
